Global Variables in MVVM Cross

Hi all,

We are developing MVVM cross application that supports WP,Droid and Touch. After successful Log-in we need to save some data's for accessing in whole application.

How to define global variables and access in application ? Kindly suggest

    Kindly research the topic before you post, there are a lot of resources on the Internet describing this. But there are a couple of ways I can think of you can do this.

    1. Create a service, with properties which hold your values. Remember services are singletons!
    2. Use the File plugin and serialize and deserialize an object which holds your values when needed.
    3. Use a Settings[1][2] plugin.
    4. Have a static file somewhere where you save stuff, similar to what the service actually does.

    Yes you're right. i have tried the following methods mentioned in the links, but didnt work.
    Navigation Service , Twitter Search.

    We have tried for global declaration in last two to three days, but still couldn't find the solution.
    Thanks a lot for the answer.
